So now you want some espresso, eh? To start the machine press one of the two buttons (for a single or double shot). A high-pressure pump moves water through an in-line heat exchange and then into the group head capsule. The high-pressurized water passes through the group head, which then dispenses out of one of the 12 titanium exhaust pipes.
